New Thermo Scientific automated nucleic acid extraction workstation provides rapid and cost-effective purification.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has introduced the new Thermo Scientific Automated Nucleic Acid Extraction WorkStation.

The fully automated workflow offers consistent, high-speed purifications by combining several Thermo Fisher tools into one turnkey solution.

Designed to provide cost- and time-effective nucleic acid extraction, users can process samples from virtually any source, while ensuring accuracy and sample integrity.

The system is ideal for a variety of downstream applications including sequencing, cloning, as well as both PCR and qPCR, and allows instruments to be used in a complete workflow, alone or even interchanged while the system is running.

Controlled and monitored by the Thermo Scientific Momentum™ scheduling software, the Automated Nucleic Acid Extraction Workstation and other networked tools can be easily programmed to ensure the simultaneous running of multiple processes.

When leaving the instruments unattended, the software enhances user confidence by providing accelerated simulation to test required processes in advance, isolating problems and delivering recovery options for the workflow.

The system integrates the Thermo Scientific Kingfisher® Flex purification system, Multidrop®Combi reagent dispenser, Alps 3000™microplate heat sealer and Orbitor® RS or OrbitorBenchTrak™, with a number of other components including instruments drivers, storage hotels and a waste station.

Key to the efficient movement of plates between the different instruments and storage hotels is the incorporation of the Orbitor RS or OrbitorBenchTrak.

For smaller workflows, the Orbitor RS provides high-speed, reliable microplate movement with highly flexible plate handling.

Enhancing the functionality and versatility to support larger workflows, the OrbitorBenchTrak includes a track for the Orbitor to move along, significantly extending the reach of the plate mover and enabling access to more instruments and storage hotels.

Providing complete automation of high-speed purifications, the Thermo Scientific Automated Nucleic Acid Extraction WorkStation offers rapid, efficient and trustworthy processing without the need for monitoring by the user.
